Contemporary Graphic Novel Seminar: Reading List

As I mentioned already, starting next Monday, I will be teaching a 4th year seminar called Words and Pictures: The Contemporary Graphic Novel here at the University of Windsor. Before the class gets started, I wanted to post the list of primary texts (which consists of both graphic novels and trades) for the course; in addition to these texts, we'll be reading a lot of comics theory. Anyway, here's the list:

Aaron, Jason and Cameron Stewart. The Other Side.

Bechdel, Alison. Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic.

Campbell, Eddie. The Fate of the Artist.

Ellis, Warren and Ben Templesmith. Fell Volume 1: Feral City.

Karasik, Paul and David Mazzacchulli. City of Glass: A Graphic Mystery.

Lemire, Jeff. Essex County Volume 2: Ghost Stories.

Morrison, Grant and Frank Quitely. All Star Superman Volume 1.

Seagle, Steven and Teddy Kristiansen. It’s a Bird.

Sturm, James and Guy Davis. Fantastic Four: Unstable Molecules.

Talbot, Brian. The Tale of One Bad Rat.
